FiOptics ZTE router gaming issue!
My GF and I just bought a house NKY and got FiOptics installed. Everything works fine besides my gaming. I cannot connect to anyone because it says my NAT type is moderate. I read that it is probably the garbage ZTE router. It is a modem/router combo. Can this be replaced with my own modem/router combo? If so do you know the modem login and password? I am not the most networking savvy person any feedback will help.
The ZyXel VDSL modem can certainly be used in bridge mode and I suspect that a ZTE versuon can too - but if you have the TV service your router would have to support multicast which is used for the TV service.
Perhaps looking for a DMZ option on the ZTE modem and seeing if you can use your existing router as the DMZ device might be easier.
Thanks! That seems to have resolved all my issues.
